Dental x-rays

We perform dental x-rays called Orthopantomograms (OPGs) and Cephalograms. An OPG produces a panoramic view of the jaw whilst a cephalogram is an x-ray of the facial structures.

What to expect

You do not need to do anything to prepare.

You will need to remove glasses, dentures and jewellery from your head and neck before your x-ray.

Each type of dental x-ray is different.
